Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Happy Hour Review: The Backyard Brick Oven Pizza & Sports Bar

Those living and working on Bend’s northside have a new place to enjoy happy hour while waiting out the rush hour line of traffic that builds up on Empire Ave.

The Backyard Brick Oven Pizza & Sports Bar opened earlier this year and provides diners a casual spot for happy hour cocktails and appetizers. Whether your thirst can only be quenched by a cold beer or you prefer a signature cocktail, enjoy $1 off all drinks and $2, 16 ounce beers during happy hour.

The Backyard’s drink list includes a Jamo Shot N’ Beer menu that pairs different varieties of Jameson whiskey with local beers. Try the Jameson Black Barrel, a whiskey aged in double-charred bourbon barrels, and a Boneyard RPM IPA. Signature cocktails vary to please every palate, many mixed with locally crafted spirits. The Backyard Old Fashioned uses C.W. Irwin whiskey and house-infused cardamom honey.



All of the appetizers at The Backyard are fresh, not frozen. While the bulk of the happy hour app menu includes fried foods: zucchini, mushrooms, pickles, mozzarella sticks and fries or tots, you can also get veggies and hummus for something lighter.

Quickly becoming known for their wings, at happy hour you can get six huge wings for only $4 or 12 for $7. Wings come in a variety of sauces; a perk for those of us who can’t handle the heat of hot sauce.

Pro tip: Can’t make it in time for the traditional after work happy hour? Head to The Backyard for their late night happy hour from 9 to close.
